Hi,

I did a search but I couldn't find an answer to this.

Background: just got an XR650L. It has a K&N filter in it. I want to get rid of this. It is of the paper/accordion type. I also own an XR250R, and I like the foam filter + metal support/ backfire screen system.

I emailed a Uni filter vendor and they said that the foam filter does not come with the metal support, and that they did not sell it.

Any idea if a metal backfire screen is available for the XR650L for use with a Uni filter?

Thanks and sorry if this is a repeat.

The other option is to use a metal backfire screen + uni filter from another bike, like an XR600.

Has anyone done this?

I didnt use one with my UNI. Never backfired, so I wouldnt be concerned with using one.

The UNI comes with a plastic support cage. I have been using them for years with no problems even though there is no backfire screen.

Ditch the funky backfire screen. There I said it.

Thanks creeky. I'll write to Uni just to double check. Maybe they sell a metal one. :busted:

Yeah, but I'd rather run with one on. :-)
